Description
 
The report outlines a set of documentation standards based on more than fifteen years of literature and the findings from the AAMC's Group on Educational Affairs (GEA) 2006 Consensus Conference on Educational Scholarship. Five educator activity categories (teaching, curriculum, advising/mentoring, educational leadership/administration, and learner assessment) were confirmed and contents delineated with examples created to illustrate documentation of quantity, quality and engagement in educational scholarship. Implementation of these standards should parallel the development of an infrastructure to support educators. Infrastructure elements include sustained faculty development programs for educators, e-learning platforms for delivery of instruction, access to resources and journals in the field, peer review mechanisms, consultation and support for curriculum development, evaluation and educational measurement.
